Four University of Notre Dame students have been selected as Gilman Scholars for the summer 2018 academic cycle.
The University of Notre Dame (USA) in England's London Global Gateway is active year round with a myriad of intellectual and cultural activities including graduate and undergraduate classes, faculty seminars, conferences, workshops, debates, book launches and other events. The Gateway also promotes activities that advance the mission and raise the profile of the University in London and around the world.
When King Fok was 6 years old, he suffered from an orthopedic condition that caused him to spend two years on crutches. Uncovered by his health insurance, the condition was Fok’s first glimpse into how socioeconomic status impacts health care. That childhood experience informed his decision to major in Arts and Letters pre-health at the University of Notre Dame. As a future physician, he hopes to make medical care more efficient, inclusive, and accessible to all. A sociology class his freshman year helped him discover a perfect major to pair with pre-health.
The conference will be at the London Global Gateway, March 8-10, and will focus on the relationship between the fundamental principles of Catholic social tradition and the complex realities of particular situations.
